Definitely more then the flu. The damage to the lungs is alarming. Seems to act like more then just a virus in the 5% who get it real bad.
From my friend in his 50's. He is not even in the hospital but at home.
Im willing to look into sharing my immunity (once I survive).
I im 9 days into exposure.
Thank god lungs are clear. Breathing is strong. Dealing with 20% normal energy. No appetite. Lost 9 pounds so far.
Fever ranging from 101 - 103.
Fun. Fun. Fun.
Not sure what schools have to do with baseball. Schools have closed because it is hard to get the schoolyear finished before the start of the next one. Also that is public, not privately owned like MLB. I think baseball could do July or earlier if necessary. Seems MLB doesn't want to start unless fans can attend. NBA and NHL, I think were looking at the CBA(Chinese basketball league) for starting up. Sending players to neutral sites, keeping players and coaches under quarantine, and playing in empty stadiums. I think baseball could do that in Arizona or Florida or both. I kind of agree with Mark Cuban that games would help people in the crisis, but would need to be done safely. WWE seems to be handling it well so far. UFC is also going to try with 249 and their last Fight Night in Brazil.
50-80% is quite a wide array statistically which means its still not clear. if its closer to 80% you are more correct, if its 50%, we are choosing to kill people being short because 1/2 people on ventilators survive.
I can remember Snyder owning the Orioles, no doubt. Funny you mention that Rotisserie book. I bought that too and created leagues based off their categories for years. It wasn't until about 1989 that I ran a league in my unit that I changed some of the categories to make it more "realistic."
By 1993, I had developed a league that included waivers, contracts (After the draft, you had to sign a guy to a 1, 2 or 3 year contract that went up 10% each year and were guaranteed against your salary cap) and included stats like SB-CS, SV-BS and I believe we used EBHs as a category to help those guys who did more than hit homers and collect RBIs.
No, I'm going to search the waiver wire and put guys like Givens, Cobb and Bleier on the trading block and hoping to get decent offers. I've already executed a waiver claim on a pitcher and will announce that today before tonights game.
